bond that those of us who love animals and those who love dogs especially have. i think by that measure in terms of the quality of your soul, given how you treat and talk about bertie, i think that that makes you an amazing person. and i wish you the very best in your new endeavors, but i know that you're still going to be here. i appreciate the fact that you, as you indicated, you're going to make sure that district 9 gets more resources in your new job, which i appreciate. and i look forward to working with you. and, of course, you know, one of the things that i think it's an illustration of the kind of person you are, the kind of supervisor you are is that as you leave, you leave behind not only the work, but you also leave in place someone that you have mentored and someone that you have helped, and that's i think a very important testament of your leadership. the fact that you're passing it on and i look forward to working with supervisor tang as she goes on board, but the fact that she is there is another testament to your leadership. thank you. >> supervisor avalos. >> supervisor

that while they could directly administer the different garages, that we have in front of us, they consider the fact that the added oversight and community relations provided by these organizations are in the best interest of the garage and the city. i think and heard and believe that many of you have heard from the leadership of the union square community about the impact that this organization has had in union square within a part of town that sees some of the most densely traveled and densely parking situations that we have in the city. so, with that, colleagues, ask for your support for this and we will proceed. >> great. i assume, colleagues, that we need a roll call on this. we can have a roll call, madam chair. >> on item 16, supervisor cohen? cohen aye. supervisor farrell? farrell aye. supervisor kim? kim aye. supervisor mar? mar aye. supervisor wiener? wiener aye. supervisor yee? yee aye. supervisor avalos? avalos no. supervisor breed? breed aye. supervisor campos? campos aye. president chiu? chiu aye. supervisor chu? chu no. there are 9 ayes and 2 no's. >> the resolution is adopte
government and to the feds for your proper use of that. the president of the ndaa is accountable to nobody. he's already been accountable to the voters and that's it. the constitution provides that understood -- the founders understood it is in the state interest to kill somebody and they have in the constitution a provision called a bill of mark, marqe. i congratulate you and i hope you will urge the congress and the president to use their proper constitutional powers and have the killing done by congress where at least there is some accountability. thank you. (applause) >> thank you. thank you. next speaker. >>> good afternoon, supervisors. my name is john [speaker not understood] and i represent an african university and kenya school of law. i also am interested in talking about mohammed ibrahim award for 2013 and 2014. i currently reside at providence church at 1601 mc kinnon and previously resided at 5 47 haight street in san francisco. there is an interesting program that's being commended by bevan dufty. our city has secured a million dollars in state funding to expand and improve o
that some of us will be glad that we won't have a regular mcdonald's patron in our midst. [laughter] >> i think that we will miss the fact that -- well, actually i'm not sure we'll all miss the fact that carmen rarely breaks with her modern colleagues, except on the critical issue of cat de-clawing. oh, you remember that. i think many of us will miss the fact that she has been so hard working that we were all surprised that today she didn't submit any new legislative proposals and at the last minute she asked me four tough questions about the ndaa which i appreciated. and i will just say for me, one thing i'm not going to miss as you leave is that no one is going to wonder after today if i have a sister on the board of supervisors. [laughter] >> but to just wrap it up, carmen, thank you for your service. you have been a tremendous colleague. we all look forward to working with you and serving with you as co-elected officials and we wish you all the very, very best. thank you. and with that, does anyone else have any words you'd like to say? supervisor farrell. >> thank you, president chiu
the general fund, that general fund relief was simply to put us where we were before, because we had lost three positions from our victim services as a result of cutbacks in the state budget. we asked for one paralegal and the budget analyst agreed with us in this particular area. our advocates and the work that they do is not comparable to that done by our partners and non-profit organizations. they are very important functions, but they are very different functions. the work that we do in our office is directly related to legislative mandates such as probation for requesting victim compensation funds from the state. we also work with victim relocation. we're working closely together as a team between victim services and attorneys who are handling the prosecution, often assisting in that process. that is a very different process than the one that our partners in the non-profit world do. the ones that our partners in the non-profit world is very important and frankly, we couldn't do our job without their support. but it's important to recognize that they are very different. here are some
of achievements that this policy analyst helped us achieve in the time that we had that position. in 2002 we released a comprehensive report for san francisco's response to domestic violence and lists hundreds of recommendations by departments and we worked very intensively and collaborative with the other agencies to make sure that those recommendations were followed. in 2006 we conducted a safety audit for looking at our different partners in the criminal justice agencies and how well we were serving victims of domestic violence. in 2007, we started a two-year domestic violence response crosstraining institute on a victim-centered response to domestic violence. we trained 435 personnel. and i just want to mention one other way this position is so essential to our work. because of this work, because of the work of the justice oversight panel we were able to make important changes to 911 and police codes. before domestic violence was lumped into "general assault" category and now we have a specific code for domestic violence, for child abuse, elder abuse and stalking and in terms of lethalit
, allow our military to arrest and detain american citizens on u.s. soil without a warrant or due process. this would repeat the forced incarceration of the 1940s of 120,000 japanese americans who spent years in interment camps without notices of charges, right to an attorney, or right to a trial. from my perspective and the perspective of many constitutional scholars, these indefinite detention provisions violate fundamental american legal principles of the presumption of innocence, our fifth amendment right to due process, the sixth amendment right to fair trial, the eighth amendment prohibition against cruel and unusual punishment, and these provisions would allow activists and journalists to be detained for exercising their first amendment rights to free speech. i want to take a moment and thank the large coalition that has come together to ask us to support this. there are dozens of organizations in the city including the bill of rights defense committee, the coalition for safe san francisco, the asian law caucus, the labor council, the san francisco 99% coalition. i want to thank su
're trying, the number of cases that we're settling. we're not using the number of cases that the police department says is coming in, because frankly at the end of the day, that doesn't impact the bottom line for us. >> good afternoon everybody. supervisor mar, in the numbers that the budget analyst put in their report, the numbers are constant over the five years except for last year. there is a dramatic dip in the numbers for 2012. that we don't yet understand why. i think maybe you want to have a conversation with the police department about that, but it's not a five-year trend of a decline. it's a one-year drop in that number. we can't yet account for it and we have had a lot of cations between the budget analyst and the police department, but i think what the district attorney is saying that we have seen the opposite. it's just a one-year drop there. >> thank you. other questions that are related to the funding for the victim services? the problem is that at the same time we were requesting in addition to our victim services the state reduced the funding coming in. so the end re
laureate has asked us to introduce poetry into the politics of our city. so, this will be as quick as i can get it. a song for san francisco. and i am delighted that you are considering rebuking our fed who are the nbaa but that come at the end of this. so, i don't want to have too many bells before that. (applause) >>> an increase in homelessness [speaker not understood] because benches were removed elsewhere. why remove benches to take seats away from people who live and breathe in san francisco? and make sitting or lying on the streets an offense? send the homeless to different neighborhoods like playing [speaker not understood]. people need to sit somewhere out of sight cannot be out of his mind and for the car owners who seek a sunday, 1800 citations for parking on sunday, $72 for the city coffers for each offense. bike theft increased and remind me why i bike no longer. three box stolen from me by lock cutting, that was in europe. gangses, violence, theft is universal. neighborhood courts with volunteers, unpaid judges earn money for cities with restorative justice for first offenses.
.a.'s o ffice to handle workload compared to santa clara county? could you give us more detail on that? >> i appreciate that question, supervisor avalos, the reason why we picked santa clara, there was a number of reasons. no. 1 the workload is similar to us, but also they are the only other county in the bay area that has vertical prosecution and vertical for felonies. what does that mean? when you have a vertical prosecution unit, when you are doing is that you have the attorney that picks up the case from the very beginning takes the case all the way through trial and conviction. when you have a horizontal unit, you have multiple individuals, that may be picking up pieces of the case. somebody may take the case to arraignment. if it's a felony, somebody else may do the preliminary hearing and somebody else may eventually try the case. the downside in domestic violence when you do business that way, is that you lose continuity and the trust of the victim. and domestic violence is one of those areas where the relationship between the victim and the prosecutor is crucial, because the
